Hi everyone it is Tonya here with a mixed media tag tutorial today
featuring the New Limor Webber Designs - Limor Circles Stamps by

This is one of my favorite sets in her latest collection.  I
think I've used them on everything since I got
them!    This set has 21 stamps, giving
you endless possibilities for using them! I'm so happy
for Limor's success, her new collection has been a sell out
world wide.  Great news though - Limor recently
restocked them in her store, so get them while you
can!

 

I also picked a few of my other favs from Limor's store to create this
tag.  My go to  Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® in Aqua
Dolce, and the Double Scoop® Gelatos® in Chocolate and Metallic Mint
.
These colors were used to create the soft background color.
Aren't they so yummy?  You can see how I did it, it the video
below.

 

 

I also have a few
favorite Stencils in the store.   The Crafter's Workshop -
Mini Specimens and Mini Well Rounded stencils are so
versatile since they have multiple images on one
stencil.   I typically prefer the 6x6 size because they are
easily stored.  I keep mine in a 6x6 scrapbook album, so that I
can flip trough them, and they don't get caught on one another.

 

In the photo above, you
can see the awesome shadowed butterflies created with the Mini
Specimens, on the same stencil I also applied the circles, and then
stamped Limor's Circle script stamp in the center of
the circle shapes.   Since the stamps are
circular, you don't have to worry about harsh lines left by the
stamps.  I love the combined look of the stamp and
stencils.

 

I also used Gold
Texture Paste with the Well Rounded Stencil to give the raised dots
around the base of the tag.   This technique gives my tag
depth and texture.  The metallic finish gives my tag a rich tone
to the background that compliments the brass metal on the tag!

 

Here is a look at the
finished tag.   Isn't it GORGEOUS?

 

 

For added interest, I dug through my scrap pile and pulled out some
odds and ends of fabric, trims, and flowers.    The
three flowers that you see on the tag were brown and didn't make the
cut on a previous project, so I surfed them out of the bucket of "One
Hit wonders" on my desk.   They were made by Prima, and I
have them linked in the supplies below.  However, since they were
different shades of brown, and different styles,  I decided to
spray them all with Lindy's Stamp Gang Tainted Love Teal so they all
appear to come from the same collection.

 

I dripped a little
Liquitex - Iridescent Bright Gold Ink around the tag to
help  pull all the elements together. Dripping some of
the Tainted Love Teal onto the metal pieces, makes them look
like patina.

 

I bought a Scrabble game at a garage sale, and robbed one of
the "t" tiles to make the perfect embellishment in my flower
cluster.

 

I've prepared a short process video for you to see how this tag
came together.

 

 

Thank you so much for
hanging out with me today.  I hope I have inspired you!Tonya Gibbs
